Duvall Poetry - January 3 - Peter Munro

  • Written by Valley View Staff
Duvall Poetry Open Mic meets at 7 p.m. on first Wednesdays at the Duvall Library. Every month we have a featured reader (or two) plus an open mic reading. Next up Peter Munro on January 3, 2018.
By  day  Peter Munro counts fish, conducting research fishing cruises in the Bering Sea, the Gulf of Alaska, and the Aleutian Islands.  After the field season they chain him to a computer in Seattle, permitting occasional visits to his wife and children between parameter estimations.  By night, Munro makes poems, some of which have been published or are forthcoming in Poetry, the Beloit Poetry Journal, the Iowa Review, the Birmingham Poetry Review, Passages North, The Cortland Review, The Valparaiso Poetry Review, Compose, Rattle, The Literary Review, Carolina Quarterly, and elsewhere.
Munro’s second most recent publication is in the on-line journal, concis, a poem entitled Turn Around.  Munro’s most recent publication is in the journal Fishery Bulletin, a poem entitled The effects of wave-induced vessel motion on the geometry of a bottom survey trawl and the herding of yellowfin sole (Limanda aspera), on which he is listed as third author, which is why the title is so crappy.
